In leading Turkish hospitals and eye clinics, every single ophthalmological procedure is performed by experienced ophthalmologists using the latest technology and devices. Almost 100% of the cataract surgeries are performed under drop anesthesia using the phacoemulsification technique that does not require stitches. All kinds of complicated vitreoretinal surgeries are successfully performed including pars plana vitrectomy (to treat vision loss due to diabetes). Internal limitan membrane peeling, foveal translocation surgery for macula degeneration due to senior age are also performed with great success.
Glaucoma (eye tension), cross-eye vision and retina decollement surgeries are carried out using the most appropriate methods.
Excimer Laser applications for correction of myopic, astigmatic and hypermetropic vision are being carried out using LASIK method and drop anesthesia.
LASIK surgeries in Turkey have been an attraction point for international patients for a long time due to their high effectiveness and affordable prices compared to the western clinics.
In cases where laser may not be appropriate, other surgical technics such as FAKO and intacts are applied successfully.
Machine-driven and manual devices such as auto refracto keratometer, air puff and applanation tonometer (for the measurement of intraocular pressure), direct and indirect ophthalmoscopes are used to ensure precise diagnostics and best treatment results.
